Fantastic Friday

February 10, 2012

We're gearing up to get started on our bathroom renovation at the end of next week, so this weekend I'm going to be spending some time getting all of our stuff out of there, sorting and tossing out as needed. Depending on the weather, I might even take the door off it's hinges and allow it and the heat gun to get acquainted outside. If it's going to be like minus anything, that won't happen. I am not fully acclimatized to cold Ontario weather despite having been here for going on 7 years. In other words, I'm a wimp.

 Moving on.

 In the past week, I've been given two "awards". Colour me flattered!

 The first, the 7x7 Blog Award, was given to me by Nikki of The Pink Growl. I "met" Nikki through The SITS Girls Build a Better Blog Challenge. Go check her out! I mean her blog, sillies. A big thank you to Nikki!
